Tiger Woods' first competitive round since his Masters win had plenty of golf fans scurrying to watch the opening round of the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black on Thursday. They just needed to know not to look for it on TV. Although TNT begnn broadcast coverage of the season's second major at 1 p.m. (ET), Woods; opening 72 — along with Brooks Koepka's blistering first-round 63 — was broadcast almost entirely via live stream.

To watch morning action on Friday, fans can watch live coverage on through its PGA Championship Live player. They can also download the PGA Championship mobile app. By downloading the app and authenticating your TV service provider, viewers can also watch the TNT and CBS simulcasts of all four rounds. There will also be coverage of the closing Nos. 16, 17 and 18 holes at Bethpage Black on the app.

As for TV coverage, here's the schedule for the week.

Television Schedule (all times ET)


TNT -- 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.


TNT -- 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.


TNT -- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

CBS -- 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.


TNT -- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

CBS -- 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The new May spot on the schedule couldn't have come at a better time for the PGA of America, with Woods coming off a Masters victory and with Bethpage Black as the host venue. And Woods is far from the only intriguing story line. Defending champion Koepka is looking to win his fourth major in his last eight tries, and he's coming off a T-2 at Augusta National. Also finishing in a tie for second was World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who is still in search of an elusive second major title. Rory McIlroy, who won four majors between 2011 and 2014, will look to conquer the Black Course for a fifth major victory, his last coming at the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.

And then there is Jordan Spieth, whose struggles this season have been well-documented. The three-time major winner has not registered a top 10 this year, though he did show some signs of life at Augusta. Following a first-round 75, he bounced back to post rounds of 68, 69 and 71 to finish T-21 for his best result of the year. There'd be no better place to snap out of it than at Bethpage, where Spieth could complete the career Grand Slam with a victory.

All these storylines and much more give the PGA Championship a feel it hasn't had in a long time, and no one is referring to it as "the fourth major" in 2019. It should be must-see TV.
